Re: Air Cargo (non-Amazon/DHL) Thread - 2021

And they're now seeking approval to add more aircraft to their certificate, to lift the current cap the FAA has imposed on them. Hmm... That's a DOT, not FAA, limitation. In February, Eastern requested to go from 10 to 18; the DOT has yet to approve. More recently 21 Air has requested an increase f...

Re: Why does the 747-8i have a lower exit limit than the 747-400?

The type certificate says that the 747-400 with 550 on the main deck has 5 pairs of type "A" exits. The 747-8 is limited to 495 seats on the main deck, since door 1 has type "C" exits.
